'Read a book and resurrect yourself'

This reminds me of some of the stunts that the self-styled 'cultural terrorist' Hamish 'Panama Hat' Dewe used to pull - or talk about pulling.

Comrade Dewe would never diddle a kiddy out of her Xmas present, of course, but 'Read a book and resurrect yourself' is a very Hamish slogan (I suppose the book would have to be one by Ezra Pound or Louis Althusser or some other inscrutable modernist, rather than the latest Harry Potter).

It might have been a bit of a sad story - except that it was reported by Fox News.

PS Required reading for a Fox News reporter: "Garbage/ more garbage/ Hitler's works/ rubbish/ drivel/ more drivel/ and anything by Billy Graham, the Klu Klux Klan or Goebbels..."
